Greetings from Commerce, GA. We’re taking showers at a Flying J as we make our way to Harrisburg, PA. It’s sunny and warm, and we’re loving it (after all the rain). While we were in Atlanta we stopped at the Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Museum.
Like all Presidential museums we all felt inspired at how normal guy rises to the level of president. With President Carter it was even more thrilling knowing that he is a real Christian. In fact, you can even stop in his church (Maranatha Baptist church) and listen to him teach Sunday school. He wasn’t teaching over Mother’s day…but he will be teaching the class this coming Sunday. Man, I wish we could hang around.
The day after the museum we visited the Martin Luther King Jr. National Park where we saw his birth home, the church where he pastured, and his tomb. Again, for this white Hoosier family it was inspiring.
After the MLK museum we stopped at The Varsity (the world’s largest drive-in). I’ve been wanting to stopped for several years and boy am I glad we did it. The food was good and the price right and it was loads of fun. Plus it’s right off I-85.
Well, that’s about all the news. Everything else seems to be running well…at least today.
Until next time…swing wide and keep your eye on your tail,
